All of our formulas are nutritionally complete and balanced. We have added the option of feeding your own fresh meat protein sources to supplement any of our Classic formulas, which provides your pet further fresh enzymes and complement their innate proclivity for higher protein.
If adding fresh meat to your pet's food, we recommend a mix of 10-20% raw or cooked meats and organs.
Our Black Forest Classic Canid Formula was created for people who want a dry kibble that they can add small amounts of fresh meat to.
Care should be taken when adding meat to dry foods. When adding meat, you are increasing phosphorous levels. Most dog foods are only 1.1 - 1.3% calcium, and their phosphorous levels are very close to that. It is possible you may accidentally add enough phosphorous to alter your calcium/phosphorous ratios. If adding fresh meats to your pet's diet, deduct 10-20% of Timberwolf Organics dry food formula and substitute with 10-20% fresh meats of your choice or other fresh proteins such as eggs.
When feeding raw meat and organs, scrutinize for parasites (tapeworm cysts) and take precautions against bacterial contamination.
